Pencil Sharpener with Thermoset Container by Dux
Solid Greetings from the Past.
When holding this pencil sharpener in hand, one feels the weight, the fine lines of the lid and the beautifully embossed base. We believe, on this occasion, you will share our regret at the demise of duroplastics, almost ousted from the market by cheaper, petrochemical plastics. The beautiful thermoset container houses a Dux sharpener suitable for all kind of standard-sized leads (including graphite and coloured leads). Almost needless to say: You can replace the blade. We offer replacement blades for Dux sharpeners in our assortment.
A Finer Point.
The best way to sharpen leads or coloured pencils is to use a scalpel or a small, sharp knife; this way you can sharpen one side of the lead for broad lines, the other for genuinely fine lines. A real connoisseur would also have a small piece of sandpaper to hand, to rub the tip of the leads from time to time: the pencils remain sharp without being shortened continuously. However, if you prefer to use one of the usual small pocket sharpeners, you should make sure that its blade is always sharp. Dull blades will tear the wood and cause the lead – especially with the more delicate coloured pencils – to break at the slightest hitch. Therefore, we searched after the quintessence models of this commonplace article. Now we offer you our findings plus proper replacement blades.
